I Imagine it must be the same plus the $1700 to rent out the sky deck but I could be wrong

Does anyone have some sort of destination wedding checklist they are following? We want to make sure we don't forget anything!

For a legal ceremony on the Sky Deck, I was told the extra costs are:

  • $1700 for the Sky Wedding Package
  • $250 for the Blood Tests
  • $500 for the Judge
  • $150 for Translation of your Wedding Certificate

I just wanted to share that as part of my gift to my bridesmaids I got these personalized beach bags and they're great! They come in different colors too. I'm excited to distribute them. And they're on sale on theknot.com:

Hi brides to be!

I recently got engaged but i pretty much have everything planned out in my head! lol I have been eyeing Azul fives for some time now. I contacted Karisma about attending the Brides Dress Rehearsal but the next available date is in March of 2015. I am aiming for an early 2016 wedding as i would like at least a year to plan everything (and so its easier on our pockets) but I am wondering if booking before attending the BDR is a good idea? I feel like i need to attend the BDR because I need to see in person what this place looks like and just get a feel for the place. Also i am completely in love with one of the memorable moments packages and for any brides that have used these... i want to know if the have any regrets in doing so? Or if they feel its not worth the money? I am so excited to begin wedding planning but i also feel so lost and overwhelmed at the same time!  :lol:

Just one piece of advice- @@Lissie88 work with a GI certified TA so that you get all the perks available to you for having your wedding at a karisma property. Have them coordinate your BdR so it's on file that you are using that specific TA and then you will have access to deals/bonuses that others don't have. BdR is great... You will enjoy it, I did mine this past June. Karisma does a great job. There is tons of info on these boards about them! Read the official Sensatori thread too- as many of the same rules/packages/info apply to both properties. Memorable Moments packages are nice.., but if you are having large group, adding on for your extra people can add up quick on your budget! You can pick pieces from the look and don't have to do the entire thing though- so savings can be found.

@@Lissie88 the fb group is great, but it's a lot easier to find info on here and search through. Definitely work with a GI certified travel agent. I think if you book your wedding after the BDR, you get like $500 towards your wedding. Maybe it also works if you book the BDR within 30 days of booking the wedding, that's why having one of their certified TAs comes in handy. However, if you don't want to wait that long, I think you can still get a lot of valuable info by going after booking. I wish we could go, but the first date we'd be able to do that is May and we're getting married in August, so it's really not worth it. 

 

We're going with the vintage elegance package for the reception tables. They do cost quite a bit of money, but at the same time if I had to factor in renting the decor or paying extra to bring it all with me, plus the set up fees, it would be pretty expensive anyway. It just worked out that their vintage elegance package had the colors we had picked haha.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
